Original Louisiana Song: "The Ballad of Leon Terrebonne"

A New Song

One of the hats I wear is singer-songwriter. Over the past three years I've written at least 50 songs. Here's one posted on YouTube. No video, just a still image of an original sketch and a folksong titled "The Ballad of Leon Terrebonne." It's a traditional  murder ballad, an original song I wrote in October 2012 that is in the tradition of American murder ballads. Johnny Cash performed many of these.

Hope you like it.
